A district by district strategy is needed to fight Ebola in Liberia, according to the head of the UN Mission for Emergency Ebola Response (UNMEER).

Ebola has killed approximately 6,900 people in West Africa, mainly in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

Mr Banbury told Ratomir Petrovic that Liberia has made progress in fighting Ebola because of the involvement of local communities.
